BMW 335is Coupe & Cabriolet Specs Leak



A leaked copy of an internal sales memo from BMW appears to indicate that the company has given the greenlight to BMW 335is Coupe and Cabriolet production for the North American market. Drop top manufacturing would begin in March, just in time for the busy convertible-selling season. Coupe assembly would begin two months later.

The document, a sales update for BMW Canada, was published and distributed earlier this month. Two pages were posted on E90Post.com (see source link below).

In similar fashion to the recently revealed Z4 sDrive35is, the two vehicles will receive the BMW N54 straight-six twin-turbo engine producing either 322- or 344-horsepower, and 332 ft-lb of torque. An "over-boost function" will allow the engine to churn out an additional 37 ft-lb when needed. Look for a 0-60mph time of around 4.5 seconds on these cars.

The engine will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission, with a seven-speed double-clutch transmission also available. An additional water cooler and "high output cooling fan" will also be installed. BMW is planning on releasing the car with a sports exhaust, and black chrome pipes at the back.

On the outside, look for minor changes to the front and rear fascias, including LED lighting. The company will use a body-colored rear diffuser, and 18-inch Ferric Grey alloy wheels. The M Sport Package will also be available as an option. Fog lights will appear on the cabrio, but will be eliminated from the coupe "for additional engine cooling." Rumors suggest that the BMW kidney grill will be surrounded in glossy black, with the same color used on mirror caps.

Driving Dynamics Control, iDrive, and a new power-steering, should all be included.

Look for the BMW 335is Coupe and 335is Cabriolet to get a debut in Geneva this March.

535i and one other car are getting it (N55). Will be a twin scroll turbo and the engine will have valvetronic. From this article looks like 335 is keeping the N54 motor.

Any BMW with an "s" designation should have an LSD. Stupid BMW, leaving out the one thing that actually matters in a "sport" package.

What a joke.

e36 328is didn't.

I find it strange they are switching up the names within the same model. Usually it happens when the new model comes out. (ie, e36 318/5/8is vs. e46 330ci 323/5/8ci)

Yeah it's already in the 5-series GT but likely won't make it into cars with the outgoing N54.

The TT will defeinitely still be used for "performance models" like the sdrive35is and 335is, for now.

What do you mean though? You just mentioned that they've always changed the name with the mid-cycle update, it's more of the same. 325-328, 323-325, 328-330, etc. Just this time there's no displacement change so they added an s.

Looks like the coupe won't get the hood creases the sedan/touring got in its facelift. Not crazy about them. Looks like the hp/tq rating is more real now, as consensus said 300/300 was underrated. I wonder if overboost feature will make its way to the sedan/touring.

High-res photos and more detailed specs here. I like how they finally put in dedicated downshift and upshift paddles instead of the ones currently being used. Dislike the new side-mirrors, Like the new whiter, LED powered angel eyes. Not bad!
